< report >I have a very fond memory of Haishera from Ikusa Megami Zero, she's so strong and badass, such a shame that the stupid MC didn't think the same and only talked about boring Satia. So she doesn't quite has a route in this game, and looking at her character description (tags, traits and such) in other games, she never does, fuck :(

And the other is Kazuki from Grisaia, the fucking problem is that she isn't quite a heroine, because she never gets a solo route (actually she kinda does, but I refuse to accept that shit as route), my major complaint with Grisaia is this, Kazuki is so awesome :(, she's probably my favorite female character of all VNs.

So, heroine heroine, the standard type which you romance with and do stuff that couple do, I'll go with Tsujidou Ai from Tsujidou-san no Jun'ai Road, this game is so nice, and Ai is so pure, she loves Hiroshi so much that my heart faints >.<

I'll probably edit this comment to add anyone I forgot, and what about you?

If you like heroes, you can add them despite the thread title.

There's Senri Akane from Rewrite also, not at the same level as Ai but she's one of the best for me, the problem is that her route didn't do justice for her, I felt genuinely sad because for that, it's not a problem of the game, the problem is in me that was expecting X but got Y instead.Last modified on 2021-04-29 at 20:52

< report >Murasaki Hazuki from D.S. -Dal Segno- is definitely one candidate. I haven't played that title yet but I've seen videos of her route (especially her beauty pageant... that's one of the best CGs I've ever seen in a VN, no doubt about it).

Another one from a VN I have played...
Murasame from Senren * Banka. Her route was amazing and she's really funny. Her chemistry with the protagonist is amazing, too.

I might've also thought of a few others from VNs that either aren't localized yet, or I haven't played yet.
Kagaya Yuna from Ren'ai x Royale
Asuka Mirai from Nanairo Kouro
Koshimizu Kasumi and Hanamori Shiori from IxSHE Tell

I'm sure there's dozens more but we'll be here all night at this rate. So that's quite a few there.Last modified on 2021-04-29 at 22:43

< report >Tonya from Ayakshibito has been my long time fairly unconstested favorite.

Besides her, some others worth shouting out for me are Hagana from World End Economica, Lucia and Shizuru from Rewrite, Hinae from Chaos;Child, and recently Noa from 9 -Nine-.

< report >A nukige player so harder to find a decent character. But I'll throw curve ball from unpopular vn.

Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria ~Kimi ni Sasageru Encore~

Kuon Kei

I have a thing for the sexy older sister type that is also tom boyish. Its not the cute or sexy woman but person that can be funny, a little immature at times, that have a more fun personality. Add in the that they happen to be pretty attractive themselves makes them the whole package.Last modified on 2021-05-02 at 04:30

< report >There a good characters and likeable characters. The latter is much easier to find, so I'll go with good. It'd be way too much otherwise.

Aqua and Satomura Momiji come to mind. Honorable mention for Line Tiana Milla . Can't compete with the other two in terms of story background / development / how much you get "into" them, but is otherwise great.

The best characters need a good story to go along, and plenty of first person moments. It's hard to really get attached as much without that. Looking from the outside only gets you so far.
Aqua is still the only character who made me feel very strongly that she needs a BIG hug, and Momiji is.. special in itself. She is probably the strongest "girlfriend" type heroine that I've ever seen. Lettie just doesn't quite reach that because you don't get as much first person scenes with her, but is probably the second best one of that kind, that I know at least.Last modified on 2021-05-02 at 07:12

< report >I like this prompt actually. Really got me thinking about who I prefer over who and there's quite a few impactful heroines that I've come across myself. To name a few I've got:

- Lucia Konohana from Rewrite
- Noa Yuuki from 9 -Nine- Yukiiro Yukihana Yukinoato
- Rin Natsume from Little Busters
- Nagi Kodachi from Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
- Tsugumi Komachi from Ever17 -The Out of Infinity-
- Eri Shirasagi from Fragment's Note
- Arisu Toriumi from Hapymaher
- Natsume Rindou from Hello,good-bye
- Yume Ototsu from Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star-
- Sumika Kagami from Muv-Luv
- Murasame from Senren * Banka
- Arietta Fine from Symphonic Rain
- Beatrice from Umineko no Naku Koro ni
- Cat Sidhe Nekoko from Yume Miru Kusuri

I like a lot of other heroines of course but in my humble opinion these are among the best of the best in both route quality and general likeability.

< report >@7 Komachi from Ever17 is definitely up there in my list also, she's very mysterious and I like those types.

Kagami Sumika is nice, but she didn't quite mark me in the first game, but in Alternative when she believes in Takeru for being a dimensional traveler, despite how ridiculous his story was, made me almost cry. But my favorite heroine in this game is Meya.

Oh, and I like Makoto from Chrono Clock, my first best girl from the first VN I played.Last modified on 2021-05-04 at 04:20

< report >feng probably has some of the best heroine character designs I've seen so far. I'm honestly really glad Sekai Project has taken over the localisations. Here's hoping they'll get released soon!
Shirasato Kaede/Motosuwa Matsuri and Katagai Shione/Moriya Mizuka from Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade
Asukai Hiiro/Kurobane Kamome and Onbara Ren/Tanabata Shiori from Yume to Iro de DekiteiruLast modified on 2021-05-07 at 19:41

< report >I like my heroines as it is,so my take for now is Murasame Touko from Yagai Gakushuu 3. I could've just added the 4 side heroines that doesn't have a name(and incredibly desperate for some naughty stuffs with them),but who am I to judge,it's my private choice..gotta start somewhere ya know.
After this,I might consider the more "ideal" type rather than just hanging out with someone who isn't even 18+ by looks and its other traits.Last modified on 2021-05-06 at 18:45

< report >Lets give this a try:
Majikoi, Momoyo - basically a flaky and ridiculously overpowered superwoman. Easy to talk to, quirky.
Meiya, Muv-Luv - the noble-like mannerisms, valiant to the core. Her upbringing allows for fun interactions between her and those around her, especially in part one of the series.
Usami, G-Senjou - Maybe I'm biased since I've reread this VN countless times, and even though in some places plot convenience forces me to just shut my inner critic off and enjoy the work superficially, it still has the best epilogue of anything I have yet read. And why is it all possible? Because of Usami's pure awesomeness. She is basically Momoyo if you switched physical prowess for brains, quirky as hell, but also has vulnerable aspects to her character beneath the determined exterior.

Honourable mentions would be Rin from Fate/Stay Night, Misuzu from 11eyes even though that VN is dull as hell, Miu from Dracu-Riot, Mizuki from Yume Miru Kusuri.

Eh. Well. Seems like if you mix a dose of badassery, bizarreness plus some long hair - either black or red, then I'm sold.

EDIT: I....didn't mention Komachi from Ever17....outright blasphemy.Last modified on 2021-05-06 at 17:47

< report >This is really hard to answer such a question because any perception of a heroine's character is usually linked to her role in her story.
Strange that no one mentioned Sora from Baldr Sky. She is, like, one of the best written tsundere heroines ever. Giselle from Fata Morgana is another awesome heroine no one mentioned. I personally also liked Zakuro from Subahibi, but I doubt that it's a popular opinion considering what happened to her in the novel. The last I mention would be Haru link , but it's more about her character design and seiyuu, though she has both nice personality and story to back them up.

BTW, why you guys call Tsugumi from Ever17 by her family name? Lol.Last modified on 2021-05-07 at 03:35

< report >@15 You think you're on a first name basis with Tsugumi from Ever17?
#17 by kiru
2021-05-07 at 06:58
< report >@15: The problem with Sora is precisely that she is in Baldr *superbloat* Sky Dive. The game has way too many problems for the character to be that great, so many others beat her handily.
It's less an issue about her, more about Baldr Sky Dive in general. Sometimes nice characters are stuck in bad games/anime whatever. Compared to nice characters that aren't, they will never compare too well.Last modified on 2021-05-07 at 06:59

< report >Ayu from Kanon, no doubt about it. She is beyond lovable.

As for one that doesn't have a route, Junko from Danganronpa. I just love how crazy she is XD.Last modified on 2021-05-07 at 12:48

< report >I'd try to make it short. Let me see

Tachibana Kimika from Subarashiki Hibi (Suprised to see no one mentioning her, given I've never fallen this hard for a waifu.)
Minazuki Sora from Baldr Sky (Best tsundere forever)
Hanai Mikazuki from Musicus! (She is just...perfect)
Aqua from Himawari (2048 chapter...enough said)
Illya from Fate/Stay Night (Fate Kaleid Liner Illya is possibly the most cutest existence ever conceived by mankind) [Not a heroine heroine]
Bern-chan from Umineko (I want her to be my top if I ever get to be a yuri bottom) [Not a heroine heroine]
Minakami Yuki/Otonashi Ayana from Subarashiki Hibi (They'd make a great top too) [Not a heroine heroine]
Yuki Noa from 9-nine- (I'm bleeding...)
Kotori, Akane, Shizuru from Rewrite (Call me indecisive, but Rewrite has too many top-tier waifus)
Naruse Shiroha from Summer Pockets
Fujita Konron from Majo Koi Nikki
Onee-chan from Grisaia [Not a heroine heroine]
Rusalka Schwägerin from Dies Irae [Not a heroine heroine]
Salyu from Root Double [Not a heroine heroine]

< report >Woah @mastag, I remember reading your in depth post on Meiya after finishing MLA... what a legend.

I'll just add Ayane Ichijou. Her route is pretty epic and her relationship with the protagonist turns out to be a little unusual, for lack of a better term (avoiding spoilers).
